    • Fairly easy again. Got a little trap twinge on the left side from high bar, giving ulnar nerve pain a bit, think I need my pec minor smashing to bits by someone's thumbs
    • Bench was a breeze
    • SLDL felt strong, bar got away from me on rep 4 of rep 2 and got a little hammy twinge, nothing major
    • Be interesting to see how far I can push these sleeveless, beltless, wrapless 10's

    • Another good one, squats are feeling good but I have this weird trap nerve pain on the elft side that can flare up. Think I need an elbow in my back somewhere
    • Bench is flying
    • SLDL was very nice

    Bench is definitely flying for you, it's really taken off!

    It's certainly my best lift right now. I had a big period where I didn't train it, then not properly at all, and also not having quite the right setup either. Now that all those things have come together I think I'm getting some noob gains again. Also not being androgen deficient is probably helping, upper body responds better to proper hormones than lower body lol.

    • Start of a proper training block again. No belt or sleeves, as forgot belt, and sleeveless has been feeling good recently. No pain, just "awareness" of the hamstring, and control/positioning seems much better
    • Bench is still feeling good, feel like I could bench 150kg right now
    • SLDL looked faster than it felt, again very little to no pain

    • Interesting one. No pain ons quats, maybe a twinge, but thse look high. Side angle time. Control and tightness feels much better for "cutting the squats" so it's a fine line, as divebombing unloads the hamstring which I think has exacerbated the injury
    • Bench was easy really, there is trepidation on weights over 100kg in relation to tendinitis, which there was a flash of, but nothing bad. 105kg felt smooth
    • SLDL was a learning experience. Noticed that my right knee is getting crowded a littler by my elbow, so after working sets I moved my stance in by a toe and slightly moved grip out so I am just within the power rings. Did some conventional DL and pulled a 170kg beltless, which may be a PR, and didn't hurt the hamstring

    • Swapped days around as had a splitting headache and Tom gave me the assistance day. Co-codamol kicked in during the skullcrushers thankfully so I got all my reps
    • No pain, hamstring is getting better by inches every day, just have to keep that trend moving forward
